3700+ San Diego & 6800Ultra Temps High?

Recommended Posts

I had to take my WC off because my pump stopped on me.

Here is the temperatures that nTune shows. Are these high temperatures for everything at just web browsing? If so, what can i do?

I thought so. This is not OC'ed either. What could be the problem? I just reapplied AC5 like 2 times, and still the same temperatures. IT has the stock Heatsink though. Could that be the culprit?

Just to chime in...how's your air flow in your case? Babyelf brought up a great point in another thread relative to venilation and keeping the system cool.

 

The NF4 chip puts out quite a bit of heat....My S.D. idles 32-36..never seen it over 46 load, but I keep the case well ventilated, and she's overclocked, pumping 1.55 V-core through at 2837 at present.

 

The TIM/Artic Silver and heat sink questions are good ones, and really easy to determine, as well.

I spread it throuout the chip evenly, and placed the heatsink on.

 

follow the instruction on AS5 website

 

about 1 rice grain blob in the middle then put ur heatsink on.. and change the thermal paste between the chipset and chipset fan.. take the middle off.. not the pads on the side

I will try to re-apply the paste on the CPU. I have to fans on the back of the case. blowing air inside, but that's it. Should I have more in there? Should I have the fans blowing differently?
